Summer’s Delight

As the sun grins from the sky clear and silent,
Melts the snow covered mountains and sent,
To the hills, to the river, to the sea, thus enter,
Summer is here to act upon the idle of winter.

Once a beach that was dull without a quest,
The waves begun to unravel the frozen sand,
The pelicans’ greetings raised lenient guests,
This is the beauty; the grandeur of this land.

Like the monomania of baseball lovers hear,
Their triumphs from backyards to the parks,
Their roars, their applause, cheer after cheer
Are noises of summer, as it delightfully marks,

The calendar flipped once more on 4th of July,
Freedom is Reason! As smokes from the grill
Trekked up into the sky that we can still smell
Even fireworks bursting, yet no one can deny.

That the sun still grins from its colorful set,
And the night comes with a refreshing wind,
To count and pray life to last and upon to wit,
The joy of summer, it seems to have no end.

When diving and jumping into the pool splash,
The aroma of chlorine water, it couldn’t wash,
The fragrance of suntan lotion now in the mix,
Of Sun’s scent making Summer sweet as always.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
